About Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park

Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park is a beautiful setting that preserves the ruins of an important Confederate industrial complex.

The Brierfield facility provided high quality iron that factory workers in Selma used to cast cannon and built ironclad vessels like the C.S.S. Tennessee. As a result, the ironworks along Furnace Creek played a critical part in the Confederate war effort, especially during the final years of the War Between the States.
